    My plans originally started out that I would finish the quilt that I had started a couple of years ago for hubby for his Christmas gift this year. I had the top done but that's as far as I had gotten.
    So, a few weeks ago, he said "why don't you finish that quilt you were making for me & we can give it to Dad for Christmas?" His Dad is unfortunately getting scerosis (sp) of the liver and has serious muscle atrophy, not well at all. Ok, no problem... except that was not the plan and we don't have a lot of money to spend on gifts. So, I finished the quilt and he loves it, but now is upset because the quilt is finally done but it's not for him.
    Meanwhie, I ordered some Steelers blocks here on the board from tlpa (thank you very much!!!) and this is what I made for him in less than a week... and he doesn't have a clue!!!

    Gosh you did a really great job in a week. I love the pieced backing too. I am so happy you were able to get it done.
